The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 81

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

 81. With the transcendence of the knowledge ‘I am’, the Absolute prevails.
 The state is called Parabrahman, while the knowledge ‘I am’ is Brahman.

 It is very important to understand that the knowledge ‘I am’ is Brahman.

   When you transcend the ‘I am’ you transcend the Brahman state and prevail as the Parabrahman or Absolute.

 The Brahman is both with qualities (‘Saguna’ Brahman) and without qualities (‘Nirguna’ Brahman).

 With qualities it is the manifest world and without qualities it is the unmanifest world.

The ‘I am’ and ‘I am not’, the ‘knowing’ and ‘not-knowing’, the ‘being’ and ‘non-being’ are all the same.

  They have simply been designated using opposite terms.

  The Absolute or Parabrahman  state transcends both as there is no duality or opposite there.
